Fat and Happy

Did I miss some of the reporting on the Guantanamo detainees? There is a lot about torture. There is a lot about hunger strikes to protest…something.

 But what about those Uighurs? They certainly looked, well, well fed.

 And pretty happy, too. There must be something genetic, or cultural, that allows them to bounce back so resiliently after 6 or 7 years of torture.

 Today’s title phrase is frequently seen with another adjective, dumb. That was left out because, today, I’m not writing about the news media.
